Seattle Women's Jazz Orchestra

The Seattle Women's Jazz Orchestra (SWOJO) features many of the finest female jazz artists in the region. Showcasing high intensity jazz, tight harmonies, and lush dynamic sounds, the band performs with a fresh energy stemming from seven years of thrilling audiences on two continents. SWOJO has come a long way in a short time. Since forming in 2000, the band has performed at clubs, jazz festivals, and concert halls in North and South America, released a critically acclaimed CD (Dreamcatcher), and was nominated for an Earshot Golden Ear award in 2006! SWOJO has appeared with a number of distinguished jazz artists including Don Lanphere, Mimi Fox, Becca Duran, Susan Pascal, Sue Orfield, Greta Matassa, Hazel Leach, Jill Townsend, and Ingrid Jensen. Concerts feature the music of many local composers and arrangers, such as Al Farlow, Hazel Leach, Jill Townsend, Vern Sielert, Nelda Swiggett, Carmen Staaf, and SWOJO’s musical director, Dr. Daniel Barry.
